Lovely evening spent at Can Nicanor last night with my Mum and Daughter. Wine, great variety of tapas - traditional Catalan, fish, meats and vegetarian options. Very friendly. Will definitely go back.

The staff here are just fantastic, great conversation and very engaging. The food is also tops, try the pig face sausage, well worth the visit when in the Palamos old town.

This place is the business, accept no other for tapas in Palamos. Multi lingual staff and the freshest, tastiest tapas. Not expensive I expect it's very busy in the summer but worth it.
